Hi everyone. I had a total thyroidectomy in 2013. Never really recovered back to full health after that, got pensioned off my job at age 30 and have been rendered "disabled". At my wits end and have been plagued with lots of other autoimmune diseases since thyroidectomy. I have chronic pain and had the diagnosis of "fibromyalgia" on top of everything.
I have done a lot of research and very much believe that the fact that thyroidectomy patients are ONLY given T4 (levothyroxine) in the UK, that is why we have so many residual problems and always seem to be hypothyroid but on lab tests we are in the "perfect" zone.
I went privately in Edinburgh and seen Dr Toft a few years ago and he suggested T3/T4 but my GP was having NONE of it. Therefore I had no choice but to continue with levothyroxine.
I have now purchased Dithyron online without a prescription (yes I know it is not ideal) and am taking matters into my own hands and IF I feel great with these then I will be demanding a private prescription from the GP. Dithyron is only available in Greece and you can buy it OVER THE COUNTER - YES!!!!
Please can you all tell me how you get on with T4/T3 combo and it would be great if you are thyroidectomy patients also.
